Preferred settings of the VDT workstation dimensions posture
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 10, issue 2, 1991, Pages 3~13
As the VDT work constrains work postures because of its work characteristics. VDT worksta- tions should be properly designed so as to be fitted to various types of physical conditions of op- erators. Therefore, in this study, the preferred settings of VDT wrokstation dimensions of operators. Therefore, in this study, the preferred settings of VDT workstation dimensions and work postures were studied in order to determine the appropriate dimensions and the work postures for VDT operators which will alleviate the musculoskeletal troubles or visual fatigue. The scpoe of the study is as follows. 1. Measurement and analysis of the preferred settings of the height of workstation, keyboard, seat, and screen among the experienced VDT operators. 2. Anaysis of the relationship between the preferred settings of workstation height and the seat height control among the experienced VDT operators. 3. Analysis of the work postures of the experienced VDT operators.
An analysis of gait characteristic parameters for the Korean normal adults
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 10, issue 2, 1991, Pages 15~22
Gait analysis techniques are widely used in Europe and the United States to investigate the loosening problems of total joint implantation and to improve the technologies in designing prosthetic devices. In Korea, however, the gait data are rarely found. Recently, as the standards of living become improved, the number of lower extremity operation patients increase rapidly. Therefore, a study on the gait characteristic parameters for Koreans is of great importance. In this study, time-distance gait parameters and ground reaction fore are analyzed using a FOANAS system developed by Pohang Institute of Science and technology (POSTECH). Gait parameters of Korean normal adults were preceded and comparisons were made for the distinction of sex and age.
Interpretation of seongho's ergonomic philosophy in terms of contemporary views
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 10, issue 2, 1991, Pages 23~30
This paper interprets the Seongho/s ergonomec philosophy in terms of contemporary view of ergonomics, which appears in 'ichuck' of Seongho Sasul written in 1760's. The content of Jichuck is largely composed of three parts such as the proportions of human body dimensions, numerical examples, and the principles and method of clothes edsign. Some parts of human body proportions are tested and compared with Woodson's criteria and anthropometric data suggested by Korea Standards Research Institute in 1986. Concludingly, it is revealed that the ancient Seongho's ergonomic philosophy is regarded as apporopriate, and 'saji(4 fingers width)' is more reasonable for criterion of human body proportions.
Observation on the shape of the neck
-by principal component analysis of the mesurements-
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 10, issue 2, 1991, Pages 31~42
To understand the shape of the neck in a view of garment planning, principal component analysis has been appliedto the measurement of the neck. The neck surface development and the cross sections of the neck have been observed. The materials consist of the body mearsurements, the neck surface developments and the cross sec- tions of the necks of a total of 108 korean woman students. The difference between the right side and the left side of the neck has not been reconginiged. But the differenece among the height of the front neck point, that of the side neck point and that of the back neck point has been recognized. 2. The initial 41 items have been found having variety and duplication. So two criteria have been made to solve those problems and the selection of 34 items have been made by each criterion. 3. 43 and 34 items have been compared by means of accumulative ratios of contribution and of clearness within the meaning of principal component. As a result, 34 measurement items have been further anylysis. 4. As a result of principal component analysis on the 34 items, the four principal components have been found obtaines and inter-preted. The four principal components are 1) the thick of the neck, 2) the front neck-line on the waist basic pattern, basic pattern, 3) the shape of the neck surface development, and 4) the back neck-line on the waist basic pattern. 5. According to the graphic informations concerning these principal components, the meaning of these four principal components has been grasped on the visual. As a result, there is a large individual difference in the shape of neck.
The work fatigue of the several workloads with the impermeable clothing
Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 10, issue 2, 1991, Pages 43~50
This paper reports the results of four related studies concerning the combined effects of impermeable clothing and alternating levels of workload. The negative consequences of impaired evporation due to impermeable clothing are compared for different schedules, workloads, preheating, and high heat conditions.
The study on microslip using a signal detection theory

Journal of the Ergonomics Society of Korea, volume 10, issue 2, 1991, Pages 51~55
Since slipping has been identified as a major hazard, it is important to understand the mechanism of a slip. Many researches, based on biomechanical studies, had been attempted to do that. Thowever, the correlation between the mechanism of a slip and psychophysical behaviors of people had rarely been verified. For example, the existence of small slips in a forward direction, which do not normally perceived by human subjects, has been established by several experimenters. However, the term "microslips are not perceived by the walkers." has not been examined precisely by any experiments. The objective of this study is, using a Signal Detection Theory (SDT), to define a microslip and slip more quqntitatively with the biomechanical measurement of slip distance. The results showed that, the slip distance around the 3 centimeters, there was a obvious change in the accident detectability of the subject. The conclusion is that it is possible to identify the boundary of a microslip and slip around the 3 centermeters of slip distance.
